Note to Readers, May 5, 2004
I'm visiting my little sister in Chicago. She's sick. Really sick. The last time I saw a human being as bloated, green, and yellow-eyed as she is now, that person was already dead for two days in the tropics. Her children, and our mother and father are here and I've got more on my mind than updating the war news.
Her husband is a Teamster so at least they have health insurance.
Expect the next update on Sunday, May 9th. Until then, I'll post an open thread every day so alert readers can post updates.
